Worldwide and Film Lab Enter Into Agreement to Provide Diverse Media Entertainment in Asia
Worldwide Business Team, Inc., and the Asian American Film Lab Entered into Agreements to Providing Diverse and Innovative Content from AAFL TV to Asia
The Film Lab began in 1998 as collaborative of New York-based filmmakers whose goals were to hone their craft and to share their knowledge, experience and resources. The company is now a not for profit corporation dedicated to the promotion and support of diversity in media. The Film Lab’s President, Jennifer Betit Yen, created AAFL TV in August 2013 to address an explosion of interest in diverse, original creative content along with a corresponding rising level of dissatisfaction with mainstream programming for a lack of diversity and/or perpetuation of racial stereotypes.
AAFL TV’s mission is to provide innovative, contemporary, original content by, for and about people of diverse backgrounds - content that accurately reflects our heterogeneous country both in front of and behind the camera. One of the ideas behind inviting submissions from all over the globe is to empower creatives by providing a platform for diverse filmmakers to present unique and independent content and to be part of something bigger, showing the world that diverse talent is not only present, but powerful, with a voice and a stage on which to see and hear it.
Worldwide Business Team is a team of dedicated top-tier professionals. The managing members, corporate partners, and board of advisors have been carefully selected for expertise in their chosen fields. Throughout the years, they have built long-lasting partnerships within the motion picture industry, finance, production, contract negotiation, and film fund formation, both in the United States and in China and Asia. The team has expertise and experience in every aspect of creating, running, monitoring, investing, and compliance of film funds, as well as all aspects of film development and production. Worldwide’s abilities run the gamut of activities essential to creating, funding, producing and distributing diverse content both domestically, and throughout the world.
